MILFORD, Conn. (AP) – Milford police say several teenagers have been paying “tribute” to three victims of a fatal car crash by driving recklessly near the scene of the wreck.

Police say they have charged two 17-year-old high school students with reckless driving since the Feb. 11 accident near the Westfield Connecticut Post mall that killed three Jonathan Law High School students – Jonathan Dolceacqua, 18, Shawn Foley, 17, and Michael Vicino, 16.

A student from the same school was arrested last week near a makeshift memorial to the victims. Another teen from Platt Technical High School was arrested shortly after the crash. Their names are not being released because of their age.

Milford Police Chief Keith Mello says the tributes may be in good faith, but the reckless driving is putting the teens and others at risk. State prosecutors say they take reckless driving very seriously and will hold anyone charged with the crime accountable.
